Low on the effed up meter and cheesy story. Skippable

Watching the movie Chor Gei made me feel ANXIETY.
Like the Simon Yam character,
I drive a bmw 740Li and my
girl friend is in high school,
wait, I mean,
I know someone who
drives a bmw 740Li and has a
girl friend in high school.

Ok, move but why is it here? It’s not like the rape was violent or explicit. I’m sorry on a site that has all three I spit on your Graves. You need to come harder than a man grinding on a crying girl who looks like a 28 year old woman.

Nothing wrong with the movie I just expected something effed up.

Classy girl sucking dick for an education. Might be the least fucked up thing on this site

Well, this was way better than I expected. After watching this I have an opinion that chinese movies are generally way better than cheesy korean movies. I mean, I think I haven’t watched one good korean movie so far.

But there is an annoying flaw with this movie, it’s great up until the last 15 minutes which are completely pointless and kinda drift away from the core of the plot. So my advice, watch up until there [SPOILER](up until she hands the girl to the police) and make up your own ending. Ignoring the last 15 minutes which are Hollywood like garbage, I rate it 4/5. If you include the shitty pointless extra minutes, it’s a 2/5.

So, aside from the BS: Good actors, well written plot, interesting fresh air from the known and usual american cliche. At the beginning it had everything to be a nonsensical emo garbage but it actually developed nicely and subtly, without melodramatic masochism. It’s hard to explain, but whoever directed it have a knack for making the movie not so unrealistic that it makes you laugh and not so realistic that it becomes boring, it’s just the right amount of fantasy.

However if you are looking for an effedupmovie, this is probably not what you are looking for, only a few parts are truly fucked up, the rest is normal drama. A good drama, but not a shock movie.

Now, my theory is that the director got approached by some hollywoodian Jaba who threatened to boycott his movie unless he included the last 15 minutes of libetard propaganda and emofag wet fantasy. So I won’t lower the rate this time and will keep the 4/5.

Definitely looking forward for more chinese classy movies like this.
